The Club’s Koala Trees are Flowering
The Swamp Mahogany trees which are a part of the Club’s conservation efforts of planting native tree species favoured by North Stradbroke Island’s koalas, have begun to flower!
The Club hopes that the scent from the flowers will encourage the resident koala population around Brown Lake, to move on to the Club’s site and enjoy the 300 or so trees.

Meet the Author – Peter Turner
Peter arrived on Stradbroke in 2007 and immediately joined the Golf Club. At that time the greens were in poor condition and the salt air had worked its magic on the buildings and most of the machinery. After a couple of years he was elected president and since then the Club has never looked back.
From battling with tree roots to adjusting our shade sails or tearing down a building, Peter is constantly at work around the Club and Course and as such, possesses a fount of information regarding the happenings around Straddie Golf!
